Global Engagement

Teaching Trips

Rivier University offers a variety of teaching trips each academic year. Teaching trips are one to three credit courses taught by Rivier faculty at a location outside of the United States. Teaching trips are partnerships between the OGE and Academic Departments with defined expectations for both parties. Departments are encouraged to design global teaching and learning experiences that are tailored to their students’ needs and academic programs.
